The USA Pavilion at Americas Food & Beverage Show continues to offer exhibitors new perspectives on the global marketplace. Our goal is to help you arrange high value meetings at a reasonable cost and to provide the background information you need to make intelligent decisions when pursuing international opportunities. The National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA), working with our partners at the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) and four State Regional Trade Groups (SRTGs), will continue to offer pre-show and on-site export assistance, information and programs.

Pre-Scheduled One-On-One International Buyer Appointment Program

The fee for these meetings is $125, and the meetings will take place on Sunday, September 11 from 10:00 AM-6:00 PM and Monday, September 12 from 8:00 AM-12:00 PM. Schedule yours today!
